The new Cafe St. Jorge at Mission & Kingston.  Really lovely, quiet, and the coffee & food are great.

This isn't an iOS or Mac app -- much bigger.

Introduction
I am a developer, writer, consultant and entrepreneur specializing in iOS & OSX applications.

In a past life, at JP Morgan & Co I created and led the Internet Services Group that placed the firm as the first bank in the world on the Internet in 1991 that awakened Wall St. to the power of the then-unknown “world wide web.”   At my direction, the firm helped fund the development of the Mosaic Browser (later renamed “Netscape”) which helped launch the “dot com boom” and, among other innovations, my team delivered JP Morgan’s RiskMetrics value-at-risk modeling package via the Internet in 1994 which transformed the risk modeling business.

At Citigroup I worked in the Long Term Advanced Development group and advised the senior management team on eCommerce and technology strategies. 

I've written for C|Net's Tech Republic, InformationWeek, Fortune, WIRED and various other publications both online and in traditional print media.

From 1999 - 2004 I was the Linux in the Enterprise columnist for the O’Reilly Network.

I'm a contributor to a number of Open Source projects including RIFE (www.rifers.org) and SourceForge for which I contributed the portability patches that allowed the popular Open Source project management system (and all of its derivatives such as GNUSavannah and GForge) to be used outside of VA Software.

I consult for and advise a number of bay area startups on topics ranging from infrastructure development, to hands-on coding for custom software development and am also the developer of MacIndie a popular resource for independent Mac and iPhone/iPad developers (http://macindie.com).
